Now, under the new plan of the automaker the number of BMW electric vehicles will increase significantly. Expect some of it to come to Indian market as well.
Audi TT to quit IC engines
Audi TT is known as one of the best sportscars. The high performance sports coupe is ready to shed its internal combustion engine soon and it will don an all-electric powertrain. In short, the new Audi TT will go emission less. Audi TT has been the brand’s exotic high performance machine for last two decades and the car is now ready to go all-electric that will not only add appeal to it, but expected to make it even higher performing as well.
